    Hands down, best and most dog-oriented place I've found in and around New Orleans. I spent weeks researching before placing my dog anywhere I deemed acceptable. \r Michelle, the owner at Zeus', was willing to take my very large, very difficult, very dog-unfriendly pooch when I was in a pinch and temporarily homeless. I was even able to visit her or come pick her up for the day. Do you believe I couldn't anywhere else?\r Since then I've volunteered many a day walking some of the rescue dogs housed there, some of which are moved to wire pet kennels when paying clients' dogs move in on the weekends or holidays.( I address this because previous reviewers have erroneously assumed otherwise and, I think, have way over-exaggerated ""crowded"" conditions.) & how many boarding-daycare facilities even do ANY dog rescue? I think that's an awesome utility of your business. \r I've gotten to know the place and staff pretty well. I would, (and have) told any friend with dogs, that it is where your dog would ask you to take them. \r Prior to living in New Orleans I had worked at a grooming/boarding facility & a vet's office. Did you know that some places will only allow your dog to have water at specific times of the day so that they don't urinate as much?!? \r Where on the other hand, at ZP, the staff is always cleaning something when I 've walked through at various times of day, and seem vigiliant in keeping the dogs cleaned out, well watered, and making sure that everyone is having a good time. Most of the other places won't let your dog go outside, let alone in a great big backyard without a leash. Even fewer will let you walk through f a tour as they do a ZP, which I think says it all. \r I've referred lots of friens there. Their dogs LOVED it, and they've all thanked me.\r Even my horrible dog's tail wags when she's returned, and she doesn't even play with the other dogs. I say Zeus' Place is a sure bet. They'll take good care of you but even better care of your dog.
